Default Milwaukee Eight 107 cam testing

For those interested we are going to be doing back to back testing with an assortment of bolt in cams on a 107" Milwaukee Eight motor. The testing will be done on a stock 107 M8 air cooled bike equipped with what we are considering average, good performing, readily available components. We will be using Screamin Eagle Stage 1 air cleaner with stock cover, S&S MK45 mufflers, Jackpot M8 2/1/2 head pipe, and each combination will get a comprehensive dyno tune with Dynojet Power Vision. Each evaluation will be done in the same gear at the same engine temp. We are going to try to do this over 2 days, we are scheduling this for the last week of January.

The cams we are testing are as follows:

Cycle-Rama 460
Redshift 468
Wood WM8-22X
S&S 475C
Andrews M460

It would be interesting to do a configuration on what HD would consider EPA compliant:
HD Screaming Eagle highboutout headers, with Street Canon Slip ons
HD Torque Cams
SE Open AC
SE Street Tuner...

Then we can decide if the improvement to a non EPA compliant configuration is worth voiding the warranty.

Great idea, and thanks for offering the effort. Time is $, so- can we see, say, 1500-6000 RPM sweep in 6th gear, feet on floor boards, hands on grips, to emulate real world, cam change+tune results?

If Jamie were to stay within EPA compliance.. he could only really test the HD cams.

Thanks to Fuel Moto for doing this! It’s going to put a lot of questions and opinions to rest once and for all.

Question on the MK45’s...will you do testing with the reducer both in and out to show the effect of each cam on low end torque perhaps?

Awesome. Thanks Fuelmoto. Hopefully RS468 does well because I just ordered one.

I meant do it in addition to the other configurations!
